bignum LCD support

First cut, feedback appreciated.

Note that I sent a patch to the lcdproc list to extend support bignum digits on the hd47780 display (thanks to Stefan Herdler) since that display only supports it on 4 lines and up and I only have a 2 line display.

Robin, I just tried this and it didn't work properly for me. Looks like the custom driver I'm using doesn't support bignum's. I turned the 'Display Large Clock' setting off but the lcd continued to display garbage :-(

(In [10313]) Add big clock display to LCD. Based on patch from Robin Gilks.


  • There is a new setting on the LCD settings page. By default it is turned off.
  • Not all lcd drivers can display bugnums. There is better bignum support in the new lcdproc-0.5.0 release.
  • Some 2 line displays currently can't display bignums. There is a patch available by Robin that adds bignum to the hd47780 driver for 2 line displays.

Also cleans up lots of whitespace and formatting.

Fixes #1956
